PE 151 This class is a designer class! You will have multiple opportunities to choose what you want to read about, learn about and then write about. Remember, I will talk about tons of information not in the textbook but will use the book as a resource. So you should always bring your book, be prepared for class, be ready to take notes, and do an in-class activity or quiz!

Class Web Site:


Choosing Your Internet Topics! You will do six IEs from C4–9 on topics of your choosing from the links found on the textbook site.

Note: You will not have to turn in these pages this semester. You will be Blogging them instead. I will give you complete directions later.

Note: this date is August 31.

Support Files:

Each chapter may have additional links or files that you will need to do an assignment including PodCasts.

Contract and Study Tips! You will need to read and sign the class contract. Your signature means you understand what is expected of you in PE 151! The first assignment will help you develop good study habits and/or find new ways to be ready for your college educational experience at Covenant. Remember, you should not talk about the class with other students who will be in the class later in the day.

Class Buddies This class works well when you have a few class buddies with whom you can talk to and make sure you understand what the assignment is and when things are due.





This is the final project that you will turn in toward the end of the semester. Each week you will do an activity that may help you discover information to use when you write this paper about yourself. The paper can be done using the extra credit or standard formatting!

Please note: You will need to keep any information or assignment created during the semester on your computer and your backup device. The S2E2 can be worked on all during the semester!
